Community Suicide Awareness from Wirral Connect. Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide Group. Every 3rd Monday of month
Community Suicide Awareness
Wirral Connect is currently working to support the Cheshire and Merseyside No More – Zero Suicide Strategy. http://www.no-more.co.uk/
The core vision of the strategy is:
‘Cheshire and Merseyside is a region where suicides are eliminated, where people do not consider suicide as a solution to the difficulties they face. A region that supports people at a time of personal crisis and builds individual and community resilience for improved lives’
Wirral Connect is working to develop a number of projects and services to support in making Wirral a Suicide Safer Community.
